Dining in Dana Point
For dining in Dana Point, check out Bourbon Steak Orange County. This upscale steak house offers a variety of high-end dinner options. One of our personal favorites was the salmon (pictured). The sides, including the truffle mac and cheese, are also exquisite. For adults, there’s a vast array of drinks and alcoholic beverages, including a martini bar that comes right to your table!
Most importantly, you simply can’t beat the view! With perfect weather the majority of the time, it’s hard not to love sitting outdoors to enjoy your food. Bourbon Steak offers outdoor seating with a grand view of the resort grounds and palm trees. We sat for several hours, enjoy the gorgeous weather, delicious meal, and good company. And there’s no question; your meal will taste that much better with this spectacular view!
